"Life is beautiful when you live it – really experience it – not when you are more concerned about appearing beautiful as you try to live. When you think of your happiest times, were they in front of the mirror? Were you happiest when you were working to appear attractive or beautiful to others? Happiness and beauty come from doing, acting, being – outside the confines of being looked at."
"The world has only as much power over you as you give it. Rebel. Go beyond duality."
— Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj (via lazyyogi)
